Fixing the Root Cause of Your bunion
A common misconception is that a bunion is simply an overgrowth of bone that can be “shaved off." However, bunions are complex, 3D deformities caused by an unstable joint in the middle of the foot that allows your bone to drift out of alignment. Advanced surgical technology returns your entire bone to normal 3D alignment and the unstable joint is secured with patented, titanium plates to get you back on your feet quickly (in a walking boot).
While traditional 2D osteotomy surgery merely cuts and shifts the bone to address the cosmetic bump, Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction corrects the entire bone in 3D and secures the unstable foundation to get you back on your feet quickly.
